Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village to Begin COVID-19 Vaccinations as Early as Jan. 14

Included in Phase 1 of the CDC vaccine roll-out recommendations, all residents and staff at Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village will be offered COVID-19 vaccinations.

ROME, Ga. (January 12, 2021) - Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village, a premier senior living community in Rome, Georgia, will take a major step toward ensuring a healthy, safe community by offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all residents and team members starting on January 14.

Members of the senior community have been hard hit by the COVID-19 virus, and it continues to pose a high risk due to their age and possible underlying medical conditions — something the senior living community has worked tirelessly to counteract over the past several months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the high risk for seniors, as well as the increased risk of direct or indirect exposure for healthcare personnel, the CDC has included both populations in their recommended Phase 1 roll-out of vaccine administration.

“This day has been a long time coming. Our residents, their families, and our team members will be able to breathe a collective sigh of relief once we have the first dose of the vaccine,” said Renita Carnes, Executive Director at Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village.

Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village has been diligent in their efforts to procure the vaccines, with first communications beginning in early fall of 2020.

As a result of ongoing communication with pharmacies at both the local and national levels, sufficient quantities of vaccines were secured for all residents and team members who wish to participate.

“Keeping our residents healthy and happy is our top priority, and the COVID-19 vaccine will help us accomplish that goal in a few different ways. We’re hopeful that this vaccine will bring us one step closer to reuniting our residents and families,” said Carnes.

As the CDC recommends two doses of the vaccine for optimal protection against the virus, Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village has already scheduled tentative dates for the second dose of the vaccine.

Renaissance Marquis Retirement Village will continue to follow all COVID-19 safety guidelines set forth by the CDC following the administration of vaccinations, including N95 masks worn by all team members, social distancing, and regular wellness checks for all residents and team members.
